Is Jose Baez risking his career by continuing to support “Todd Black” and if he is—Why?

February 4, 2009

“Todd Black” PR man extroadinaire, or “Gil Cabot” ex-con–whoever he is—  has brought down a whole mess of trouble on  Jose Baez’ head.

So, here’s my question: Why is Todd Black STILL working for Jose Baez?  Wouldn’t ya think Jose would’ve dropped him like the hot potato he is?

According to Press Corp Media, Gil Cabot, ex-con extortionist, founded and is now a consultant for their company and Black is just a fake name used by several of their employees.  The current “employee” that continues to call himself “Todd Black” denies,  DENIES, DENIES that he is really Gil Cabot.

In a newly released statement, Black’s company said:  “Todd Black is a security name which has been used in rotation by three different staff members on this case. Whether Mr. Cabot also participated in that rotation makes no difference whatsoever.”

Public Relations specialist Marti MacKenzie, (yes that’s her real name) disagreed, saying  “The use of a false name completely undermines anything potentially effective or positive this person could do for Casey Anthony.  It detracts from allowing the lawyers to do their job, and for them to prepare to defend their client.”

Black response: “Unfortunately, you and/or other media who are broadcasting that are broadcasting irresponsibly to your viewers.”

And what does Jose Baez say? Does he announce that Mr. Black’s services are no longer needed and he disassociates himself from him?  Nope!!  Jose says,  “Todd Black still does work for us. And he has done, in my opinion, a very good job for us.”

Now, Jose, do you really mean that?  The guy was doing a piss-poor job back in October when he announced to the world that Caylee was dead–long before she was found, and in the midst of your search for a live Caylee.  He probably should have been fired then.  Why wasn’t he?  And even if you gave him a pass out of the goodness of your great big heart, now his presence could be threatening to cost you your law license.  Gotta be a darn good reason you’d risk everything for a –what does he call himself?  Oh yeah, he’s your spokesman–your public relations guy–the guy that represents YOU in the media.

Could it be that you consider whatever it is he’s holding over your head to be a greater threat than the mere loss of your career?

    Good questions Mystery..I thought Dumbo said Black/Cabot..did not work for him? Or is it he(Dumbo) does not pay Blacks salary..the people in Conn. do that?? I am so dammed confused..
    Please tell me that someone in a position to make a difference is looking into these blatant unethical actions??
    Most attorney’s have never used a PR firm..why does Dumbo think this is a professional move?
    Damm..Not even OJ’s dream team had a PR firm
    Are ya smarter than the OJ Team Dumbo???
    I pray you fall on your fat -a$$..and that sh*t eating grin gets wiped off your fat face!!!!

    He not on his payroll supposedly. That anonymous Connecticut family is paying the bills. He said his services were volunteered and therefore he didn’t “employ” him. Which to me would seem to make it even easier to tell him to hit the road.

    Yeah, you would think that Bozo would be suing this guy for sparking a Bar investigation, or at least pouting and whining about the problems he’s caused. Instead he’s defending him? Sounds like Cabot owns him?! He owns the rights to the story, and he’s navigating this silly defense to sensationalize the crime and milk some big bucks out of it. What a pile of puke these guys are…

    The leak of Todd Black / Cabot of caylee being dead way back before she was found may be what he is holding over Bozo’s head. Maybe Casey told Bozo Caylee was dead and where she disposed of her way back long ago, and stupid Bozo told Black/Cabot this information. Now Cabot could be threatening to spill the beans and in doing that will ruin the farce that Bozo is weaving and working on now to try to say Caylee’s body was put there by someone else while his client was in jail so it could not have been Casey that killed her. Henceforth Bozo claiming equasearch searched this area way back and found nothing . just a thought.

    oh and one more thing. If there is anyone in this case that is not crooked, Would you stand up and prvove it?

    You raise some very good points, knight owl; I think you’re right. If Cabot goes down, he’ll pull Baez down with him for sure. Cabot is writing the defense strategy so he can sell a juicier story down the road. If they had found the body before LE, they could’ve gotten Miss Psycho acquitted and made MILLIONS off it. Thank God Kronk got LE to the body first!

    That makes sense, Knight Owl. I can’t think of any other reason, Baez wouldn’t have kicked him to the curb. It would also make sense then, that Dominic Casey was working in cahoots with Baez to find her body. Wonder if Todd Black or Gil Cabot or whoever he is was on the other end of the phone that day he was searching the woods.

    For one thing Jose Baez represented to the bar that Todd Black was working on his own, not for him and he did not represent his firm. Now he’s saying he represents his firm and he’s keeping him. Did the Florida Bar hear this??? Let’s hope so. I do think Cabot has got something on him. Maybe this helps make the video a little clearer now too. They did know she was dead before she was found. So, was it Baez on the phone with Dominic Casey??? Bozo has earned his Bozo/Dumbo names once again. This time so has his friend. He could profit more by spilling the beans.

    The media would be all over it, and for once he could be a hero. Did you hear that Mr. Cabot???

    My guess is……”Todd Black” has something on Bozo. Like Knight Owl suggested, it’s possible that “Black” knows quite a bit more about this case than has been released, and he may be holding it over Bozo’s head.

    The whole defense team seems to be a little bit shady…..Just My Opinion!

    I wonder if PI Jim Hoover didn’t start ratting them all out by turning over the video to LE.
    And another thing I can’t figure out: WHY WERE THEY TAPING THEMSELVES COMMITING A CRIME? I’ve never been able to answer that…maybe it was “insurance” of some kind. Like, “we’re all in this up to our necks, and this tape proves it, so keep your mouth(s) shut or we’re all going down…” That’s the only remotely plausible explanation I can think of…but then Hoover turned it over to LE…was he setting them up, or did LE squeeze it out of him?

  14. niecey456 permalink
    February 4, 2009 2:24 pm

    Wasn’t it reported intially that Hoover was trying to sell the tape to the media? Did the media rat him out?? Obviously he had to know that if the tape and explanation for it were made public that LE would respond. Maybe we haven’t heard the last of the video issue???

  15. itsamysterytome permalink*
    February 4, 2009 2:53 pm

    My guess is D. Casey was planning to take the tape to whoever sent them there to search to show them exactly where they had been looking. They could then further refine their search if she was not found. What they were planning to do once the body was found is another question. I think it could have been Todd Black he was talking to. I think D. Casey said he had asked Hoover for the tape and Hoover had refused to give it to him.

    They were all working for Baez not the Anthonys in my opinion. It just doesn’t make sense that it was the Anthonys.

    There are so many loose ends with that video…we never heard back about the psychic’s phone records, or Dominic’s, for that matter. LE has gotta be digging into it; I can’t imagine they would just let it drop.

    Mystery, I do believe it was the Baez camp and not the Anthonys. I completely agree on that one. Somehow and I could be wrong, I think if they would have found her, no one else ever would have. I think that whole thing dropped for a reason, but I have one more thing to add. Wasn’t Todd Blacks blunder on CNN back in October, or am I wrong??? Anyone know????? I’m thinking they knew from the beginning.

    “Todd Black” was brought in in September, haven’t found the date on his blunder with CNN. I do believe Miss Casey must have told Mr. Baez the truth. Just couldn’t give him the exact spot. Or maybe God blinded them to it, so Caylee could be found in answer to so many prayers.

  20. niecey456 permalink
    February 4, 2009 3:21 pm

    I don’t believe the Anthonys had anything to do with it, and I believe that Kid Finders’ profit is the Caylee Foundation, so they may not be connected.

    Guys, I think Todd Black is Jose Baez.

  22. niecey456 permalink

    I think he’s both Gil Cabot and Jose Baez! I think that’s why some of the documentation leads back to Jose’s wife.

  23. February 4, 2009 4:09 pm

    Hi Paula,
    Agree that the prosecution is the only ones not crooked in this case. I need to revamp my question, if there is anyone on the Defense side that is not crooked , please step forward and prove it~~

  24. February 4, 2009 4:15 pm

    I can tell you Bozo cannot even tell the truth about his race and trying to use that card to his advantage. If Dumbo is Hispanic then i am Black.

    Niecey, you’re right, Todd Black’s blunder was in October. I don’t know the exact date, but it was on Headline News with Mike Galanos. Hope that helps…

    Thanks Ostella! So my guess is they have known the truth as early as September and as late as October. Of course Baez could have known earlier and that’s why he enlisted his den of thieves. Casey has told the truth. Bank on it!

    Luckily for us, all the fraudulent and sleazy people involved in this case aren’t smart enough to pull anything off successfully. They seem to want to plot and lie and cover up but they are so damn dumb they keep getting caught in their own web of deception! Are there simply no authorities that can put an end to this circus???

    I forgot to add that I really like your theory, KnightOwl! It would really fit if Cabot was threatening to spill the beans on Dumbo. I bet that’s it.

    Thanks, Just Sayin.

    When Casey said she wanted to speak with George alone and Baez put a stop to it, I wonder if she didn’t tell Baez then. I really think she was ready to confess at that point. Can’t remember exactly when that was. Was it before Black’s October blunder?

    I don’t know if I think Black is actually Baez–His voice was very different in that clip in October, and that investigator said he recognized his voice as Cabot’s.

    Niecey.. I agree KC has told Dumbo a form of the truth..like she knew Caylee was dead and where to find her remains..I don’t think she told right away..the scare could have been when Kronk was looking around and called LE. then the storm saved their butts…as soon as they could get out there they started looking.
    I agree with Mystery..they were taping the location to get directions when they didn’t locate the body..had they found her they were ready to take a long out of state ride..she would never have been found..at least that was what they were planning…maybe they were planning a trip to CONN.?
    Dumbo can’t be Cabot could he? I thought Cabot spent time in prison and there are photos of Black/Cabot.

    It was when she was in jail the first time before LP bailed her out. I believe it was late July or early August.

    Remember Mystery she made reference to why she just wanted to talk to Dad in the “lost jailhouse videos”.
    Mand I do think they would have taken a long ride.

    The storm did sort of save their butts. That was in August, I believe.

    Most of what was on the parts of the tape we saw,(I’m sure we have not seen the whole thing, because LE got it first.) was around that house, and I think the house may play a role in this. That house was on the other side of the road. The thicket you saw him (D. Casey) coming out of first is how thick the woods are in Florida. The parts we saw that were not so thick were around that house.

    Mother Nature can be helpful that way…remember in the Peterson case, a raging storm blew through the Bay Area and churned the waters of the bay enough to release Laci’s body from the anchors. Without that storm, her remains probably never would have come ashore. Now in this case, it looks like Hurricane Faye kept these gold-digging body hunters at bay. Without that storm, they probably would’ve found her and Miss Psycho would be in Hollywood with a movie deal right now.
    God, I just shuddered…
    I agree, Mystery, that would explain why they were taping their “expedition.”

    Hello all…some very interesting comments, like many I think Bozo hired D Casey for devious purposes…hmmmm!

    All the anonymous people who put out statements should be a huge red flag for anyone following this case.

    What motivates these people? What do they have to gain? So far their reputations are being ruined and they are being revealed as the cons they are. And all the while they play no role in this capital case.

    Jose should resign today.

    Don’t see that happening, Boston! They’d have to drag him out of the limelight kicking and screaming.

    Hi Jill! How are things down under?

    I agree with you–you don’t get people like Dominic Casey and Gil Cabbot and Kidfinders, etc. without seeking them out. And you would only seek that type of person out if you had something to hide or something shady going on.

    G’day my lovelies…I want Bozo to stay – he is such a “help” to the prosecution. {once convicted she will appeal…just lets hope the evidence is irrefutable {sp}.

    Well the memorial is definately on for next Tuesday…sure hope that there won’t be any protesters…that would be in very bad taste!

    Jail spokesperson says they are OK with Casey watching the ~2 hr video of the memorial {oops wait a min…she is only allowed out of her cell for 1hr/day..{guess they will say it is for compassionate reasons.}

    Many have said that Casey won’t want to watch…IMO she will {not for the right reasons} but to see if any of her {ex} friends turn up etc..remember her sadistic tendencies!

    Mystery all is well here…my grandson is just over 9 months, eating sandwiches & crawling all over…now the fun begins for my daughter – hi!

    Stay warm! Cheers from down-under xxx

    Why would Jose tell the Bar that Todd Black does NOT work for him if he’s going to turn around and admit that he DOES work for him to the media?? Stupid!

    But then again, this is the same person who initially said that noone had access to Casey’s car but Casey, while throwing the theory out there that someone else could’ve killed Caylee and put her in Casey’s trunk to frame her so i don’t know why i even bothered to ask the above question.
